The New Milford Sewer Commission has tabled a discussion on a proposed sewer rate increase.
The Newstimes reports that the Water Pollution Control Authority Superintendent threatened to quit Monday night if the town doesn't cap the amount of waste taken into the treatment plant because it will violate state permits if the volume continues on the current pace.
The cap was eventually approved Monday. The published report says Superintendent Michael Finoia could lose his license and be criminally charged if he knowingly allows the facility to accept more septic waste than permitted.
The Sewer Commission has a massive debt owed to the town from the 2012 plant upgrade.
